First Year Camp: The 2016 Adventures Begin

The semester is well underway and we’ve had some brilliant events so far! On Friday, 11th March, 96 first years collected in front of Fisher to depart for the adventure of a lifetime (even thought they wouldn’t remember much of it) aka our renowned First Year Camp! The weekend brought with it tales of goon guzzling, cross-dressing, goanna spotting, The Great SASS Invasion and, of course, being covered head-to-toe in questionable substances found only in the depths of Challenge Valley. As many partied on well into the early hours, new ‘friendships’ began to form (based on mutual interests and drunkenness), which we hope will survive for many years to come…

O-Week 2016 – Dive In

O-Week 2016 was a busy week – First Year Camp spots SOLD OUT by Thursday, we almost sold all of our BBQ t-shirts (the remaining ones will be available at our BBQ next week) and most importantly we had about 600 people sign up for 2016 membership! A big thanks to everyone who came by our stall and congratulations to all the new members who are now part of one of THE greatest societies on campus. Keep an eye out for Aqua Regia, our newsletter, which will update you all on our upcoming events!

We’ve made the prices for this year’s birthday bonanza as cheap as possible so that nobody is left out of this fabulous night.

General Meeting – Week 4!

Brush off those ballot-writing hands and ‘SECONDED’ exclamations because SciSoc is up for a general meeting in week 4!

Thursday, August 21, 5pm, Manning Meeting Room 1 (Middle level of Manning, near ACCESS desk) to be exact!

The function of this meeting is mainly about passing standard model constitutional amendments and to elect 3 executive positions:

-Publicity Officer
-Welfare Officer

Please take note that ALL executive positions (including the above) will be up for election at the Annual General Meeting later this semester – so if you want a taste of the exec for a shorter commitment before you run at the AGM then this is for you! You will be a part of helping to run BuckyBall and BBQs and possible other social nights!

Join us after upstairs for a few bevvies!
